Casting finish is what one would have expected from Taiwan in the early 70,not from any place in the world in 2014. The variable speed control is a 2 handed operation and there is considerable lag in the digital readout. The depth stop bolt was poorly milled in that I had to remove it and refine the threads so that the nuts would turn. There is no spindle lock so that you can lower the bit to your desired depth and set the stop single handed..... The surface grind on both the base and the table was so coarse (almost 1/64" deep) that I was afraid to place expensive material on it. So I made a custom table top for it, which I would have done anyways to get a bigger work surface. In 45 years of wood working, I have wore out 3 benchtop drill presses, the latest of which was a RYOBI, of which the Jet seems to be a clone, without the better features of the RYOBI. The variable mechanisms are practically identical,(BTW the RYOBI variable speed adjust was smooth and easy and I look for my Jet to fail the same as the RYOBI did- eats up the drive belt, as I am seeing black rubber dust leaking out of the cover..... The most and best outstanding feature of the JET is the runout, or, rather the almost lack of runout -.00016...This outstanding in any price range drill press..... I feel that the Jet 12" is about $140.00 over priced no matter who sells it, or where in the US it is sold.... (price seems to be standard all over USA)
